Patient was given for eyelid surgery in Jan 2010. During a recent hospital stay, nurse applies ointment inside patients eye for dryness 4 days later he still has red, swollen, red, itching eyes. Will return to eye doctor tomorrow hope fully he can wait that long. Nurses should read patient history before applying any drug that is listed as active on patients history.

I have always been inflicted with a butt cleft crack or fissure, sometimes last 2 days to 2 weeks if left untreated. This past attack was a nasty bleeding crack, I used this product and in 2 days I noticed a improvement and now 5 days not damage is noticeable and skin looks healthy. We have always used this US product with never an issue on anything from paper cuts to now Butt cracks. If you are allergic to neomycin I would stay away from this and maybe try polysporin instead, as its third antibiotic is gramicidin.

I had a biopsy on basal cell skin cancer on the left side of my nose. I used Neosporin daily for 5 days. The area around the wound began to blister. I discontinued use and the area seems to be improving. If you use this product for conditions similar to mine, use caution.
